Toru Yonaha getting back to his Roots

This upcoming release from Toru Yonaha is the perfect companion to his 2007 album “Utage ~party~” which was heavily influenced by J-pop. The 11 track album titled “Roots ~Ryukyu Iwaiuta~ (Best of Okinawan Traditional Songs)” will be released on 9/24/08 in Okinawa. Dude, I am so buying this. (Via 沖縄三線日和.)

  1. Haisai Richie,

    Went to Washita Shop in Ginza yesterday and picked up this CD. Highly recommended for those who are into Okinawan music.

    P.S. Sorry it’s been so long.

  2. @Mark: Haisai!!! Long time no hear. I’m getting my copy in tomorrow and can’t wait to listen to it.
